A village in west-central Saskatchewan is warning its citizens about several wolf sightings this week.

Three wolf sightings have been reported in the village of Glaslyn, Sask. in the last two days. The sightings were near the village's school.

A local trapper has looked at tracks left in the snow, and is confident the animal isn't a coyote or large dog.

Representatives are working closely with conservation officers to track the animals down.

Schoolchildren are being kept indoors for the rest of the day, and they will not be allowed to walk home from school.

No one has been hurt, and no close encounters have been reported.

People are being told to not approach or capture the animals. If anyone sees a wolf, they are asked to move indoors and call police.

Glaslyn is located 200 kilometres northwest of Saskatoon.
